Vicar of Brackley & Rural Dean of Brackley Deanery

This is a key post in the Northampton Archdeaconry and in Peterborough Diocese.  Brackley Deanery consists of 30 parishes of which the town of Brackley is by far the largest – now with a population of around 18,000.  The new Vicar of St Peter with St James will be joining a church that is eager to be missional in the ever growing town of Brackley. 

In the town of Brackley we are looking for a Vicar who will

  • enjoy the challenge of leading a church into growth
  • communicate the gospel with clarity and conviction
  • have experience of working with children and families in the wider community
  • enable the church to offer worship that is open and accessible
  • thrive as a team player
  • be comfortable with IT


In Brackley Deanery the Vicar will

  • serve as a missional Rural Dean for an initial period of 5 years
  • work with new and established incumbents
  • help a largely rural deanery to grow in confidence
  • enable Brackley Church to become a positive force for the Deanery
